Hello fellow G-Men and Women,

Hopefully I'm posting this in the correct area of the forum.

I am a lead guitarist, vocalist, songwriter, arranger and avid home recordist in Sugar Land, TX (18 miles southwest of Houston). I recently left my band for proverbial "creative differences" and I'm looking to collaborate with other area musicians on original rock material.

I'm 44 years old, have a family and a full time job so I'm not interested in late weeknight gigs or heavy partying. I have close to 20 original tunes that I want to record but I can't and don't want to do it alone. I'm looking for a bassist (a real one, not a guitarist who can also play bass....like myself), another guitar player, lead singer (gender doesn't matter) and a keyboard player. I have two good drummers that I work with so that instrument seems to be locked down.

My influences are highly eclectic, including: Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, Rush, Genesis, Coldplay, Aerosmith, John Mayer, The Wallflowers, CSNY, etc....As I mentioned earlier, I play lead guitar, but I am by no means in the guitar hero category. I can shred when I want to but prefer to play in a more melodic context, complementing the song and vocalist, not overshadowing them....don't get me wrong, I love Satriani, Eric Johnson, Alan Holdworth, etc but that's not the kind of stuff I'm writing.

My objective is to record orginal material (both my own and tunes written by my band mates) and market it to publishing houses who would in turn sell the material to younger, established artists. I have a modest, but adequate home studio and rehearsal space. I prefer to collaborate with local musicians but virtual collaborations are also welcomed. No drugs or heavy drinking

If you are interested or know someone who might be interested please e-mail me: gbartkus@msn.com we can have a chat and see what develops.

Thanks for listening.

Bart

You don't have to limit yourself to your local area. People across the globe can contribute to your original songs via .wav files. And it's even easier if everyone has the G cuz you can just fling backups all over the place and keep the individual track integrity.

Thanks RZ,

I agree with you regarding the ability to "trade" .wav files via CD's or the web. I've heard some great collaborations using that process here on the site.

There is something about the magic that sometimes takes place when your just sitting there strumming your guitar or sitting at the piano, not thinking, just playing in the moment and one of your band mates says: "hey what's that?, play it again". I'm sure you've been there. People start joining in, writing lyrics, crafting parts and the next thing you know, you have the foundation for a song.

All that stated...when your 44 like me and have a full time day job you are considered a "geezer" by the local musician community, even when they know you can play. If anyone on this site wants to collaborate on some of my stuff or theirs.....I'm game.

Thanks again for your reply.

Bart

There's a band called Weezer, right?

How about all of us 40+ folks hook up and call ourselves GEEZER?

I can hear it now..."Hey man, did you hear the new Geezer CD? It's awesome! They don't play live because concerts run past their bed times and besides they don't put on a very good show becaue they all have knee problems and bad backs, can't move around the stage very well....

BS to that......Geezers can still rock!

I will be 41 in mid January 2005 :lol:

Lys might beat me out with all those Rics and the nice digital camera etc...

Old geezer? I'm 55 and my father is 83 and he still makes and plays world class hammer dulcimers.

However I would really like the op. to play some keyboards or bass or mandolin on a colab. Particularly when I get into a composing slump. (like now) I'm in the DFW Tx. area so the mailing of disks would only take a couple of days.

mrskygod,

I am in OKC and would enjoy colaberating eventually but I am still very green on the G.

Had the Yamy 4-track cassette for several years and got frustrated with how my mixes sounded on other systems (really bad monitors among other thigs).

I quit recording much after my 4 year old was born (of course she wasn't 4 when she was born) and when we got a PC I started reading up big time.....kind of home school without any hands on.

That lead me to saving up for the G and a few other upgrades so now I record a little on the weekends but I don't think I could really coab much until I get my G-legs (pun somewhat intended).

Maybe in another 6 months or so...I have a back log of songs to redo on the G and hope to get enough GC gift certificates to buy a Roland Cube 30 so I can re-amp some guitar.

Hi Bart

Should you ever be looking for a singer to collab with over the web, just send me a PM.

Apart from a couple thousand miles inbetween us, and 17 years difference in age I don't see any problem whatsoever :wink: . And I'm sure that the common interrest will bridge those differences without any problems :wink: .

Cheers,

I'm 42. Is that too young to join Geezer? I'll bet me and Bartman could do some awesome harmonized leads together. 8)

Once you're 40, you can consider yourself a geezer, but not really. Let's just say that if AARP is sending you stuff in the mail, you qualify!
